PhD position summary/title: 2 PhD Positions in Redox Efficient Phosphorus Chemistry

Phosphorus is essential for life on Earth and plays a prominent role in modern science and technology, where organophosphorus compounds are of immense importance for their wide-ranging applications in material science, nanotechnology and life sciences. At present, however, the overall industrial processes to produce these phosphorus compounds are unsustainable, energy intensive, and inefficient. To meet the growing demand for phosphorus derivatives, whilst complying with increasingly stringent environmental regulations and sustainability issues, this NWO VICI research programme will advance P(III)/P(V) redox cycling and modernise the use of phosphorus by developing novel one-electron processes that minimise unnecessary redox reactions.

PhD position summary/title: PhD Position on Liquid Organic Hydrogen Carriers

Hydrogen is becoming one of the key energy carriers for the future to deal with the challenge of climate change and achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement, also because it can help to compensate for the intermittency of renewable energy resources, while it can be sustainably produced from e.g. solar and wind power through the electrolysis of water. Large-scale usage of H2, however, will necessitate its storage at massive scales.

PhD position summary/title: 2 PhD Positions on the (Electro)chemical Recycling of Solid Hydrogen Carriers

Hydrogen is becoming one of the key energy carriers for the future to deal with the challenge of climate change and achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement, also because it can help to compensate for the intermittency of renewable energy resources, while it can be sustainably produced from e.g. solar and wind power through the electrolysis of water.

(06) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: PhD Positions in Experimental Quantum Physics

Project 1: Continuous atom laser

In this project you will build the first continuous atom laser. An atom laser is a beam of atoms that is described by a coherent matter wave. So far only short atom laser pulses have been created by outcoupling a beam of atoms from a Bose-Einstein condensate (BEC). The laser stops working when all atoms of the BEC have been outcoupled, requiring the creation of a new BEC for the next atom laser pulse. BEC creation is usually a lengthy process, requiring several cooling stages to be executed one after the other in time. We have built a machine that can execute these stages one after the other in space, enabling us to Bose-Einstein condense continuously [1]. This allows us to create a BEC that lasts as long as we want. It’s the atomic equivalent of an optical laser with perfectly reflective cavity mirrors. Your goal will be to take the next step and outcouple the first continuous atom laser beam from the BEC. Such a beam would be an ideal source for continuous atom interferometry [2]. A second goal of the project is to create interesting driven-dissipative quantum systems and study their properties.

Project 2: Rb-Sr quantum gas mixtures and RbSr ground-state molecules

In this project you will create ultracold RbSr ground-state molecules and use them to perform quantum simulations [3]. RbSr ground-state molecules have a large electric dipole moment and a magnetic moment. These properties enable the tuning of anisotropic long-range interactions between the molecules by applying electric and magnetic fields. After creating the molecules using unusual magnetic Feshbach resonances that we discovered [4], your first goal will be to transfer them into their absolute ground state using laser pulses. Next you will study the interactions between the molecules, also in order to stabilize them against decay and create a quantum gas of molecules. Another research avenue is to confine the molecules in a lattice and induce spin-dependent interactions between them. This will allow you to study interesting models of magnetism. So far all ultracold ground-state molecules are composed of two alkali atoms. RbSr, composed of an alkali and an alkaline-earth, has a quite different molecular structure, enabling novel quantum simulations. Yet another intriguing research avenue is to explore novel few- and many-body quantum physics with Rb-Sr mixtures, exploiting interaction tuning and element-specific optical lattices.

Project 3: Sr optical clocks

In this project you will build and do research with one of the most precise optical clocks in the world. Your clock would go wrong by only one second over the lifetime of the universe and is capable of sensing the change in gravitational time dilation originating from a height change of less than one centimeter [5]. This project is very collaborative as it is not only a research project in itself, but also a crucial part of other research projects. As a start, you will learn the ropes from our superradiant clock team. You will be involved in every aspect of building your clock, from electronics, over lasers, optics, frequency combs, ultrastable resonators to vacuum chambers. Once the clock is operational you will use it to collaborate with other research teams, enabling our superradiant clock, precise qubit operations in our quantum computer (project 4), or studying fundamental physics with precision spectroscopy (with our colleagues at the Free University). For the latter you will participate in setting up a frequency link through telecom fibres to the Free University in Amsterdam and to the Eindhoven University of Technology. This project is part of the Quantum Delta NL Ultracold Quantum Sensing Testbed, which will give you many opportunities to work with industry, in particular to design photonic circuits for optical clocks.

Project 4: Quantum simulation and computing with Rydberg coupled single Sr atoms

Quantum computers and simulators can solve problems that are utterly out of reach for traditional computers. We are building two quantum computers/simulators based on arrays of strontium atoms held in optical tweezers [6], one in our lab and one at the Eindhoven University of Technology. Quantum bits are encoded in the internal states of these atoms and quantum calculations are carried out by shining laser beams onto the atoms in a well-orchestrated way. Quantum computers based on neutral atoms profit from the fact that the atoms are naturally identical and that it is quite easy to scale the computer to hundreds of quantum bits. Our quantum computer is based on strontium atoms, an alkaline-earth element that is also commonly used to build some of the best clocks in the world. Exploiting the clock built in project 3 and supported by QuantumDelta NL and the Quantum Software Consortium we are building quantum computers that can demonstrate algorithms developed by QuSoft or solve quantum chemistry problems. In Amsterdam we can currently trap strontium atoms in an array of 49 tweezers [7]. You will extend this machine with the lasers necessary to implement one- and two-qubit gates and perform quantum simulations and computations with it.

PhD position summary/title: PhD Position in Latent Paint Curing with Light-Triggered Catalysts

The main challenge of this new project will be to tune the activation behaviour of new latent and light-triggered catalyst for paint curing. You are expected to synthesize new catalyst for paint curing, test them in real paint and to investigate mechanistic aspects. You will need a creative mind to develop light-activated catalyst that work in dark-coloured paints. You will make several new Fe-based catalysts, with different physical properties and different catalytic activities. The goal is to tune the activity and the wavelength of activation. You will need to make sure that the catalyst also works in paints containing dark-coloured pigments. To make this possible we need your creativity, enthusiasm and passion. This should result in sustainable, latent alkyd paint drying processes. These challenges offer ample opportunities for catalyst tuning and catalyst design, which will be guided by advanced computational and spectroscopic studies.

PhD position summary/title: PhD Position in Global Strategy and Innovation

Despite stark evidence and mounting pressures from the public opinion and stakeholders, the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the related policies vary substantially across countries and firms. As dominant players in the global economy, multinational enterprises (MNEs) have been called to take a more active role in the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and recently their strategy has been increasingly influenced by the UN’s 2030 Agenda. MNEs’ managers are pressured by their stakeholders to integrate policies and practices which have a clear connection to sustainable development. Yet this represents a major managerial challenge, as the MNEs’ actions and strategic decisions may exacerbate rather than alleviate global challenges such as climate change, poverty, gender discrimination, unsustainable consumption, among others.
